How Do You Pack?

So, how do you pack when you travel?

I like my things organized. I'd group and pack them in zip locks, even my clothes. But since deciding on minimizing my plastic usage many years ago, I've been on a hunt for an organizer that's washable. On a trip to Bantayan Island last year, I saw my friend Val's garment organizer. She said she got it from Beabi. When I arrived in Manila from that quick Bantayan vacation, I visited Beabi and grabbed some colorful organizers. I was so happy.


Neat and organized.


Incredibly easy to pack and unpack!


I also love these gadget organizers.
You can use them for your accessories, too! :)

These Beabi organizers have certainly made packing and unpacking a joy. While I love packing (because I know I am going somewhere), I detest unpacking (because that means, vacation is over. haha). But since getting these organizers, unpacking has been easier.

And because this is one of my favorite finds, I'm giving away a set -- two medium and two small garment organizers, plus one charger organizer. I promise you, packing (and unpacking) will never be the same again.

To get all these, all you have to do is --
Leave a comment here by answering this question:
What's your favorite summer destination?
Asking, because I do not know where to go this summer! :)
Come to think of it, it has been a year since the first give-away!


A screenshot: Blanca dela Cruz posted this on my FB wall when she received
the Swatch watch she won on my first blog give away. :)


Will raffle off these garment organizers.


Plus this charger organiser.


This blog give-away will end on March 13 (because it's my twin nephews' birthday)!
Will announce winner on March 14, 2013!

Good luck! :)

  1. think it's Cebu! My brother and his family (that includes my adorable nephew, Liam) are based there so we go there so often. I have spent 2 summers there already - always in time for the Holy Week. And I was there last weekend again for work / leisure.

    My work requires me to travel and like you, I make use of travel organizers to separate office from casual attires. But really, I've never seen organizers as colorful as these! I think my set now looks too boring (they're all in purple) and is in dire need of colorful alternatives!

    1. Hi Leah! That's good to know you have family in Cebu! Are you spending Holy Week there again this year?

  2. Cebu! I went to Cebu last year twice -- one to Moalboal and one in Bantayan with my family from the US and there's just so much to see in there. I've yet to go to Oslob {been wanting to}, to Malapascua and all sorts of islands that's just really beautiful. I love Cebu city, too. I think 2008 and 2009, I've been there thrice per year.

    Guess it's my favorite without a doubt :)

  5. Hi Ai! Definitely Cebu! Having lived in Mactan my whole life, I really thought I had seen all the beautiful beaches in our beautiful island. Now that I am starting to explore other parts in Cebu, I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of Moalboal. It's like Boracay without the crowds, the tourists, or the dollar-priced food. I love their beautiful beachfronts (very clean, if I may add), the white sands, the fact that we were the only ones there because we went on a weekday, and the new memories that my friends and I captured on camera, including the ones that I now keep in my heart. I look forward to our next trip. We may be off to Bantayan Island one of these days. Needless to say, I am very excited. Lots to see in our very own island of Cebu!

  6. Batangas and Tagaytay. But if money is not an object, I want to visit Norway again and spend summer there.

    1. I must agree with you on Batangas and Tagaytay and wow, Norway! I should include Norway in my to-go list. :)

      Thank you for joining, Michi!

  7. It would definitely be El Nido!
    I've only been there once but the place had truly captured my heart.
    It has a laidback atmosphere, just perfect for those lazy days you want in a paradise.

    1. Your answer makes me want to book a flight to El Nido right now! I will make it a project to go there this year.

      Thank you for joining! Good luck! :)

  8. Nothing beats spending time with friends in the beach, Misty! I want to visit Moalboal one day. As for Bantayan Island, I'm sure you'll love it there!

    Thank you for joining! I appreciate it a lot! Will draw the winner on the 14th, so come back! :)

    1. You're welcome, Ai. And thank you! Your blog is inspiring! I hope one day we and the rest of the girls can go island hopping or something. I really want to travel now. I've been in hibernation for far too long. lol. See you soon! xoxo

  9. For me, it would be Bantayan Island of Cebu. It's like little Boracay sans the crowd and night life. Definitely, a perfect place to relax and just lounge by the beachfront reading a good book.

    1. Totally agree with you! I love Bantayan, too! The white-sand beach is just gorgeous and the food is always fresh and yum! :)

  10. Palawan! Although I haven't been there during summer but I love it so much that I've already visited Coron, Puerto Princesa and El Nido. :)

    By the way, found your blog in PTB and now following you in Google Friend Connect. Hope I win these organizers. :D

    1. I envy you, you've been to all three! I've only been to Coron. And I fell in love with the place. You just inspired me to visit Puerto Princesa and El Nido! One day, one day!

      Thank you for following me! I shall follow you, too! Nice blog!

    2. Thanks, Aileen!

      I'm planning to visit Port Barton and/or San Vicente next. Hopefully this year. :D

  11. Coron, Batanes and Davao are my top 3 picks.

    Coron- so many islands to choose from to stay a whole day in and just do nothing but swim, eat, read and sun bathe to enhance my naturally tan color, plus, the locals are friendly, the place is practically crime free, and you get to meet many fellow backpackers to chill with.

    Batanes- one of my dream local destinations. I love the idyllic setting.

    Davao- to be with my family; plus, no traffic, cheap food, low crime rates and the beaches are a few minutes away!!!

    1. I love all your three picks. I've been to all three and each hold beautiful memories. So, you are from Davao? I super love Davao! :)

  12. It will be Palawan for me and Reb. We want to explore one of the eight wonders - the Underground River!

    We will win this contest! We need the organizers just in time of our trip to HK and Macau on March 20! Yehey!

  13. My friends and I are going to Mt. Banahaw this May. We are excited with the itinerary since it's different from what we normally do. The place that we are going to stay doesn't even have a tv or an air conditioner. Totally different.
    We always see to it that every vacation will be unique and unforgettable. No dramas, just pure fun!

  14. I've been wishing to visit Koh Chang or Krabi but plans have changed. I now have tickets to Cebu! Yes, I'm home bound. I'm excited to see any of Cebu's beautiful beaches. No specific plans yet. Any suggestions? My last stop as usual will be in Negros. In time for my papa's birthday. :)

  15. Hale Manna, Moalboal Cebu. It's the place to be for some quiet time away from the hassle and bustle in the city.

  16. Apo Island in Negros. It's nice to swim with the clown fish and turtles.
